There are many reasons you may require oral surgery.
Here are the ones most commonly performed by your trusted team at Austin Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry:
Tooth Extractions: You may need to have a tooth extracted due to extensive tooth damage that’s beyond repair, advanced periodontal (gum) disease, and as a component of orthodontic treatment. Our team will make every possible effort to save a tooth. If, however, you require a simple or surgical tooth extraction, you can count on our team for outstanding, gentle care!
Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth, also called the third molars, are notorious for causing pain and dental problems. They frequently become impacted or trapped in the jaw, leading to an infection that may damage the nearby bone and tissues. Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most commonly performed oral surgeries. Most patients recover with minimal discomfort after a few days.
Implant Surgery: Dental implants are screw-shaped titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. That helps prevent bone loss in the area, which enhances your oral health. Implants provide a secure foundation for implant restorations, such as single crowns, bridges, and implant-supported dentures, delivering unmatched comfort and stability. Implant dentistry is safe and highly predictable, with a greater than 95 percent success rate. With proper care, your beautiful and functional replacement teeth can last a lifetime!
Bone Grafting: To ensure the success of implant surgery, you’ll need adequate bone mass. If, however, you’ve been missing one or more of your teeth for an extended period and the bone in the region has deteriorated, Dr. Madeleine may recommend a bone graft to build up the bone in the area and ensure you’re eligible for a dental implant. The procedure involves making a small incision in your gums to expose the bone then adding the grafting material. The body builds new bone around the graft, providing sufficient bone mass to support a dental implant.
We are committed to providing our valued patients with comfortable care throughout any dental procedure. Our sedation dentistry options and gentle techniques will ensure you’re relaxed and stress-free while receiving outstanding dental care. Dr. Madeleine and her team welcome your questions and encourage you to share any concerns. You can always count on us for service that exceeds your expectations!
